Students have development day
POYNTON High School recently held its first Student Development Day.
The event was an opportunity for students to take part in activities that wouldn’t fit into a traditional teaching day at school and allow them to focus on issues that affect them. Students, pictured, looked at different types of relationships. There was also a visit from police who told year nine about child sexual exploitation.
Key Stage four students focussed at health and wellbeing through activities such as learning about study skills, food and nutrition, pilates, circuit training, golf and yoga.
More than 45 people visited to the school including local businesses, police, golf instructors, youth workers, nurses, Stockport Mind, Connexions, Puregym of Stockport, Shrigley Hall, Everybody Sport and Recreation and Able2 Physiotherapy and Pilates. Headteacher David Waugh said: “The day was a huge success, providing students with an alternative, interactive and engaging day of education, we would like to thank all of our partners who gave their time.”
